Born in Nantes on the 27th September 1968, Joachim Garraud was classically trained before deciding to turn to his now passion, electronic music.
It was at the Boy club in Paris in 1989, that Joachim first began to DJ. His success at the Boy led him to immerse himself in the universe of writing and production at the heart of radio Maxximum, France's first national radio entirely devoted to dance.
Later on, he featured in the first rave in Moscow, known as the Youri Gagarine Party which brought over 300,000 people together in 1991. Inspired by this, Joachim became DJ at Paris' infamous Queen club between 1993 and 1997.
But whilst club shows were still a thrill for Joachim, he strived for the feeling he got when playing in front of huge crowds. In 1999, he got the opportunity to relive this feeling once again by playing in front of a massive 2.4 billion television watchers on New Years Eve in Cairo with French icon, Jean-Michel Jarre for his show entitled Metamorphoses.
This work propelled him to become a digital pioneer and create along with Jean-Charles Carre, his own recording studio in the heart of Paris which allowed him to remix, arrange and produce artists such as David Guetta, Jean-Michel Jarre, Paul Johnson, Deep Dish, David Bowie, OMD, Kylie Minogue, Mylene Farmer, Cassius, Ceronne, Moby, Robbie Rivera and many more. He also created in 2000, the label Gumprod, in association with David Guetta and Jean-Charles Carre.
More than a simple DJ and producer, Joachim developed a brand new concept which fused the DJ world with live musical improvisation, creating a genuine show, which was an instant success and attracted attention from all four corners of the globe. This was further enhanced when he created a community which he named, Space Invaders.
